PS3 finally getting some more Fallout 3 lovin'
9/17/2009 2:29:00 PM
PS3 owners have probably given up hope for more Fallout 3. It looked like Bethesda was fine with a one night stand because they had not yet provided the 5 DLC expansions on Sony's console.
But Bethesda finally did call and they want a second date. And third. And Sixth. That's right, all five previously unavailable DLC packs are coming to the PS3 within the next few weeks starting with "Broken Steel" next Thursday. Click read more below to find out the specifics of when the others will be released.
Also, an update was released today for the PS3 version priming the console for the upcoming releases. The update included some fixes, optimizations and support for trophies in the DLC.
Finally, a Game of the Year Edition of Fallout 3 will be released on October 13th for the PS3 ($59.99), Xbox 360 ($59.99), and PC ($49.99). This will include Fallout 3 plus all five DLC packs. That's a pretty good deal if you haven't purchased them already.
Don't wait so long to call next time, OK Bethesda?
